Simplicity 3250 bustier

Here’s a bustier/ bra top I made yesterday from Simplicity 3250. I made it from a 50 cent remnant of luxury satin, found in the $1 bin at my favourite fabric store!

Very comfortable to wear, it’s a one way stretch satin. I thought I’d be clever and sew the 2 ends together at the neck, saving me another set of buttons to wrangle with. The significance of those buttons becomes clear when putting the bustier on – it’s OK, I just have to get hubby to do me up at the back!

Anyway, it was a fun project.
